PS3 Owners Still Hung Out To Dry For Dawnguard?!

-Joshua Nicholes

Sad news for PS3 owners coming out of the Bethesda’s offices today. As you may know, there was some DLC released some time ago for the ever popular game “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” called “Dawnguard”. The DLC was first released for the Xbox 360 and then soon to follow for the PC. However, PS3 users have been in the dark for some time now regarding as to when they will also be able to enjoy the extra features and story of Dawnguard with the developer having many statements saying that they cannot get the DLC to properly work on the PS3 system. It was stated that the performance was “unsatisfactory”. Sadly, more news came out today regarding Dawnguard’s status for the PS3. Bethesda’s global community lead made a post on the Bethesda forums with some disheartening news for PS3 players.

The post is as follows:

“Earlier in the month, we provided an update on Dawnguard’s status for PS3.

“It’s been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we’re at with Dawnguard. Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizable content like Dawnguard. We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone. The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want. Dawnguard is obviously not the only DLC we’ve been working on either, so the issues of adding content get even more complicated. This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve, but we are working together with Sony to try to bring you this content.

“We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms. When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that.”

With all the trouble Bethesda seems to be having with getting Dawnguard to work on the PS3, it may seem like PS3 users may never get to experience what it has to offer. Hopefully, Bethesda and Sony can get something working so the PS3 fans can enjoy Dawnguard soon.
